Dedication to Martha M. Burnell
To Miss Burnell, former principal of the Training School, we lovingly
dedicate this forty-first volume of Alpha. Her life and personality have
been and will continue to be an inspiration to all of us with whom she came
in contact. We commemorate the various phases of her work by appro-
priate plates for divisions of activities and organizations recorded in our
To the Alpha Board:
My teaching began in the State of Maine in the autumn months of 1887,
after receiving my diploma from the Gorham State Normal School; thence
on to a country school in the mountains of New Hampshire, and soon to
Concord, its capital. During my short principalship of the Rumford School
in Concord, I conceived the idea of further study, and was directed to the
Bridgewater State Normal School— that glowing forge of education where
Albert Gardner Boyden was principal.
Mr. Frank Ford Murdock, first principal of the North Adams Normal
School (likewise its first president when the school became a college) was
instructor in geography at Bridgewater. He was a great teacher. His work
attracted wide attention, and he was given charge of the teaching of geo-
graphy in the city schools of Chelsea to which I had strayed after my courses
at Bridgewater, and a live term or two in the fishing town of Rockport. Dr.
Albert Boyden asked me to come to the eighth grade in the Training School
(1895). His genial, contemplative attitude toward our interests stimulated
us, always, to try new ventures. His was a great gift.
Arthur Clarke Boyden, who was vice-principal with his father, outlived
the principalship, and became Bridgewater's first president. He was a
teacher never to be forgotten; and some of us thought the old school had
lost what it was out to get, by placing in an executive position, one who
could create in his students a real urge to think. When the Junior High
School opened, Dr. Arthur Boyden asked me to become principal of the
Training School, for we had been steadily losing Mr. Brenelle Hunt, then
principal, to the rarer, upper air of the psychology classes. To us older teach-
ers he has always seemed our Training School Principal, but psychology was
his bent. We were glad, indeed, that he continued to work in Bridgewater,
where his brilliant mind still scintillates — an ornament to the college.
Dr. Zenos Edmund Scott, our sceond president, brought an inspiring
conception of education which the college will never lose. All of us were
grateful for his penetrating study of our problems as they were, for his quick,
time-saving decisions, and for his breadth of knowledge of educational
movements, and wide acquaintance with educators — all of which he shared
with us so generously.
The year 1938 marked the close of my work in Bridgewater. It also marked
the close of President John Joseph Kelly's first year of administration. With
us many years as a highly appreciated teacher, his continued consideration,
and always gracious interest remain-— "a song and a silence in the heart."
Martha May Burnell
Brookline, January 16, 1939.
Within thy life we grew;
The task you set we knew:
To burn thy beacon bright,
Where fail the rays of right.
O Alma Mater, thy children strive
To keep thy faith alive
O Alma Mater, we sing for thee
This song of loyalty.
O Alma Mater, thy voice alone
Will guide in paths unknown.
Within thy life we sang
Of love and peace that rang
Throughout thy sounding halls
Now memories in thy walls.
Beyond thy life we raise
Thy worthy name in praise
Where e'er we chance to be
We honor B. T. C.

After four years together it is inevitable that a group of students should develop
certain qualities which characterize that group. Our class has been no exception.
Enthusiastic participation in all the varied phases of life in our college, whether schol-
astic, social, or athletic; a gradual steady maturing without the loss, happily, of its
sense of humor, love for fun, easy comradeship and informality — all these belong to
the class of '39. It is only fitting that a yearbook should be the tangible expression of
the essence of the class it honors. This the editor and staff of Alpha have tried to do.
They will feel more than repaid if, when looking through these pages, now and in the
years to come, happy memories of work and play with classmates will be recalled to
mind, if, herein you will sense the underlying spirit of your class.
Our heartfelt thanks to
Miss Pope, for her invaluable financial advice,
Miss Nye, for making ours a more beautiful book,
Miss Davis, for giving us the practical advice and information so welcome to the staff,
Miss Vining, our new advisor, for giving so generously of her time, energy, and en-
And those members of the class who have consciously or unconsciously contributed
to the making of a yearbook which could not otherwise have been.

Sharp lights of dew . . .

"It's white," says Damon Murphy. "It's black," says Pythias
Albertini. That's to be expected when these famous feudsters get
together, but their friendship is easily discernable under violent
"rubbing". Give Barto a set of golf clubs and a set of dice and he'll
make the world his own. Barto is famous for his spaghetti feeds,
and his quiet, frank and sincere manner. He is always testing the
practicability of teaching methods by naive and unconsciously witty
questions that roll the class in the aisles.

French Club, Library Club, Women's >
A love of reading and a retentive mind have formed Barbara's
background of valuable information. She takes advantage of college
activities which satisfy her appreciation of literature. She saves
her grand sense of humor for her intimates but the story of her losing
vocal fight with a steam shovel while out training has gotten into
circulation. Barbara's clear-cut features and profile received fame
in Campus Comment's front page picture: Beauties and the Bust.
Her quiet, unassuming manner and voice seem to reflect her inner
Garden Club, Kindergarten-Primary Club, Topics of the Day Club
Anne's innocent eyes and expressive mouth add to the effective-
ness of her unconscious humor. A great yearning for the southland
crops out in her drawl. Anne can't stand cats or a week-end in the
dorm. She takes art, drama, and sociology but doesn't let them take
the curl out of her lovely hair. Afternoon naps, movies, reading in
the bath tub, talking about her relatives, are some of her extra-curri-
cular activities. Anne's mind and tongue leap over mental con-
nectives so quickly she leaves us grasping at logic.
Men's Club, Men's Athletic Association, Captain of Basketball
The answer to a coach's prayer, John is the lanky master of the
long shot on the basketball floor, dynamite with a baseball bat, shot
put or javelin, and a flash with track; and quiet and modest as every
sport hero should be. Long John has no bad habits save for an occas-
ional indulgence in a ham sandwich. He was for three long years
the most eligible unattached man about campus. Even if John asks
of others only things he can do himself, that doesn't really narrow
down the list of his possible requests.
President of Library Club, Chairman of Lecture Fund, Glee Club
A five-four combination of intellectualite and socialite. As the
former, Jane reads current books and arranges for lectures. On the
social side, she sings in several organizations, puts her dramatic
talent to work coaching the Library Club in its winning play, dances
joyously and skillfully, and plays a severe game of tennis. Such a
varied taste reveals her vitality and animation which are reflected
in the crispness of her voice and her matching clearcut, trim, personal

He is affable and artistic and his intimates realize his heart is
on the stage with his pitch pipe, make-up and wigs. Four years
have shown us that he knows the secret of not worrying. On week-
day nights he serves as guardian of administration building and on
week ends he figures his time is his own. Frank served S. C. A. quiet-
ly, but efficiently as keeper of the minutes; and yes, Frank, the Cape

She's little, continually on the go; and her lovely sparkling eyes
always seem to be asking "What's going to happen next." Something
usually does, and it will be fun if Rita has a hand in it. Rita's tastes
are modern, — good swing and new hair styles. Behind her irrepres-
sible good spirits, she's sensitive and earnest — a fact which she won't
always admit, even to herself. To use her own slang, she's one of
the "peebo" kids. . «

Head of Soccer, Head of Et Cetera Sports, Day Student Council
Calm and assured in class, Mary is a flash on the hockey field
and basketball court, whether playing, refereeing or organizing. Inde-
pendent and self-sufficient in her actions and opinions, she has her
own unique system for reading all the latest novels. Unassuming,
yet determined, she greets life and her friends with gay nonchalance.
Secretary of Science Club, W. A. A. Representative
One-third of a blonde three-some, Marion bubbles over with
enthusiasm and gay chatter. Expressive hands and a spontaneous
laugh are integral parts of her conversation. Capable and precise,
she belies her slight stature and femininity. When not cutting up
frogs, chasing chromosomes, or watching the barometer fall, she can
usually be found counting stitches. Inclined to worry about details,
she surprises herself by accomplishing without trouble what she
starts out to do.
Class Representative, Newman Club, Hobby Club
Wholesome and jovial, Mary is the picture of health. Having all
the attributes but none of the deficiencies of the old-fashioned girl,
she is usually reserved but possesses an infectious giggle. Speaking
earnestly and with a laugh in her husky voice she invariably ends up
by saying something entirely different from what she meant when
she started. Mary may be found absorbed in the latest novel, look-
ing up someone's record in the office, or vainly attempting to pro-
nounce someone's name for the first time.
Dramatic Club, Women's Athletic Association
Self-sufficient in a truly feminine manner, Amy works thoroughly
and conscientiously. Serious in her class work, she favors literature
and dramatics, in which her careful, precise enunciation is an asset.
Well-read and keen, she can speak with intelligence on many subjects.
Amy's well-formed head and even features give her an enviable profile.
President of W. A. A., Campus Comment, Newman Club
This tall, slim mainstay of W. A. A. is the personification of the
organization's ideals. Gerry's graciousness and friendliness give
her an unusual ability to make others feel at ease. She'll never be a
Ginger Rogers but she's willing to try even that, if it will add to the
merriment she loves to share with others. However, Gerry can adapt
herself as the occasion and her position require. She is top ranking
basketball player both at college and for the home town and got to
the top during the Mt. Monadnock episode.
Campus Comment, Newman Club, Kindergarten-Primary Club
Soft-spoken and unobtrusive, nothing ever seems to bother Marge.
Always ready for excitement and fun, she and her friends have pepped
up many a school dance. With her low, hesitant voice, she is a master
of understatement and her witty remarks are the delight of the class.
When otherwise unoccupied amuses herself and her friends recalling
her latest antics or making up lists for scavenger hunts.

Versatility personified — that's Jinny. Whether composing a

Jinny is equally adept. A serious discussion spiced with humorous
comments, a demure manner belied by shining coppery hair and
sparkling eyes. She has an elfin grace, complemented by sincerity

A conscientious worker who is made the man behind many a
scene, Bob peddles Campus Comments and runs down ads for Alpha.
As the George of "Leave it to George", he has won our admiration
for his willingness to pitch in on your task. His interests are in
musical, biological and dramatic fields. Bob is also well versed on
the "hows and wheres" of New York City.
Sports Editor of Campus Comment, Dramatic Club, Glee Club
A born actor who stole the show our freshman year with a superb
rendition of Shylock in Miss Moffitt's final production "The Merchant
of Venice," Bongy has kept up his acting from play to play and year
to year. He showed us ability on the soccer field and in the school
paper. The bi-weekly bits of whimsicality known as "Odds and
Ends" have been widely read and universally enjoyed.

Happy-go-lucky in the face of the most dire calamities — even
car troubles, Gert has a smile for everyone. A grand sport, she is

The active, sportsminded girl and serious student are concealed
behind a face which is distinctly exotic. On the basketball court
and ice rink we admire her ability, in classes we depend on her solu-
tion to the problem which had us all puzzled. A chosen few pene-
trate the veneer of reserve to a Dot whose fine sense of loyalty is ac-
companied by her ability to have fun. Her weaknesses are the newest
styled sport shoes and telling secrets in her sleep.
Lecture Fund Committee, Secretary of German Club, Topics of the Day
Whether making arrangements for the next lecture fund speaker,
taking notes for German Club, catching up on the sociology assign-
ments, or going through the torture of History activities, Meredith is
constantly on the go. With business-like efficiency she hurries from
one class to the next where she takes rapid, copious notes. Taking
part in many outside activities, she finds her ability to concentrate
on the work at hand a decided advantage. Outspoken and possessing
decided opinions, Meredith can talk to anyone and everyone with
the greatest of ease.

Betty, the short member of the Brine-Hill combination, has
lovely dark-blonde hair and eyes that crinkle when she talks or laughs.
An infectious smile breaking into a contagious giggle is an indication
of her jolly personality. Brisk in action and abrupt in speech — she
is keen and spirited. Familiar to the geog and math classes is her
long drawn-out "w-e-l-l" as she frantically formulates the answer
to an unexpected question. Witty comments and snappy comebacks
provide mutual enjoyment for Betty and the South Door Gang.

Ray is Bridgewater's representative in the service who trots into
the navy yard every Wednesday night. For four years he has been noted
for his Crysto-mints and "cuts", amassing an all time high in the
total of each. His actions fail to hide his ability, though, for a special
report or a recitation will reveal an analytical mind and a twelve
cylinder vocabulary. Flipdo's car and shirts add to the color of our
Class Representative, W. A. A.
Completely self-assured, Helen knows what's what and as the
Dorothy Dix of the class, what to do about it. Keen and penetrating,
she uses her wit both for amusement and as a weapon. Helen has
definite opinions and expresses them pungently, punctuating her
remarks with little emphatic gestures. Always late for class, she is
nevertheless usually on time when it comes to chauffeuring her many
and willing passengers. The little Dutch Maid's accounts of life at
Falmouth make it an exciting place.
Literary Editor of Alpha, Library Club, Topics of the Day Club
Tall, capable and Swedish, Judy is ready to argue dogmatically
and intelligently on any and every subject, any and every hour. It
is then that one gets a glimpse of her vast store of information ac-
quired from many a library shelf and current magazine. She lends
her talent to the production of a better Alpha and a more interesting
Campus Comment. This out-of-the-ordinary girl relaxes in just as
different a way showing moments of being a Russian ballerina, a
Jenny Lind or just a plain paradox.

There is no anti-toxin against her laugh and no shushing can
subdue the jingling of the jewelry she wears so well. IVIarge has a
handsome, dynamic face and figure, a very merry disposition, and a
mania for playing "swing" records. She sings both swing and sweet
music. IVIarge attends every social affair and her presence is an
attraction. That "lite cut" sign on her door may mean study, read-
ing, or playing. Her ideals and feelings are expressed impulsively
and forcefully. IVIarge condenses her classes into notes by an angular
handwriting and green ink.

Dot is tall and colorful and distinguished by her lovely red-blonde
hair. She has an inquiring mind and the ability to express her well
formed opinions in arguments that are the bright spot of the philoso-

As conductor of the Somerset Express, Dot makes her daily jaunt
with regularity. Her twin of the Junior Class is, surprisingly enough,

Rosy cheeks and sparkling blue eyes give Chis a bright appearance.
She sees the funny side of life, even in her own mistakes, and tells
them in her deliberate and laughing manner. With a ready giggle
she is a master of the pun and a collector of song hits. As a fresh-
man her lunches made her the talk of the commuters' room.
Head of Archery, Kindergarten-Primary Club, Garden Club
An ardent basketball fan, Elsie has given her moral support to
the varsity squad. She participates in archery, basketball, and ping-
pong (about which she can now show some of her huskier classmates
a thing or two) just for the fun of playing; she laughs loudest at her
own mistakes. Pert and peppy, she sports the snappiest of collegiate
clothes and an individual haircut, both entirely in keeping with her
personality. Devilish eyes and spontaneous laughter spice her run-
ning flow of conversation.
urer of Woodward, Treasurer of Kinder-
Sleepy Time Gal around school but energetic when pleasure bent.
Her tiny feet win admiration but her tiny voice gets exasperation —
from the faculty. Evie's activities include acting as chauffeur to
her gang, knitting, and singing hymns off-key. Her grin centers
not around her mouth but in the laughter wrinkles around her eyes.
She and her roommate live together in harmony because of long-
standing friendship and a kindred interest in art. Clothes, furnish-
ings, and work reveal her good taste. Her personality can be summed
up in the words, pleasing, agreeable, and amiable.

B. T. C. chief politician. He's willing to argue on any election.
But sad for him, sunflowers die, and election bets come due, in Nov-
ember. His speed-wagon has been the chief means of transportation
for extra-curricular functions; and how he burns up the roads and
the cops! Wes is a storehouse of anecdotes and stories. Among the
best of campus dressers, he tops all by flaunting a full-dress marine
reserve uniform. Although he has been known to blush in history
class, you can usually be sure this marine has landed and has the
situation well in hand.
Secretary of Orchestra, Science Club, Men's Glee Club
He stole the march on most of us by leaping into the star role in
a dramatic club production less than two months after he arrived
on campus — and did an expert job. Since then, he has kept up his
platform appearances with a position as violinist in the orchestra
and for a time as a member of the Men's Glee Club. Miss Rand
finds him an invaluable general assistant in the music department.

Secretary of Dormitory Council, W. A. A. Representative, Student
Tall, sporty and impatient, Gert is frank almost to the point of
being brusque. When she's not learning the latest dance step she's
looking for someone with whom to waste time. However she cuts up
a N. Y. Times each week, reads for lit, music and art, and reads for
her own amusement. Formals, socials, movies, sports— all find her
present. A genius for friendship and camaraderie, Gert is one of the
best liked girls in college. Although susceptible to teasing, she is
so sincere she isn't made the victim long.
Treasurer of S. C. A., Treasurer of Sophomore Class, Newman Club
Ruler of S. C. A. finance, and king of Mardi Gras, Clem is monarch
of all he surveys. His four years' work on the basketball court has
been outstanding. Whether it's receiving a favor from the inner
office or getting down a book from the top shelf he accomplishes
either in his matter of fact way. He's the college connoisseur of
dance orchestras and a witty discussionist in the class room.

With the serenity befitting a senior, Mary calmly takes life as it
comes in the classroom. Outside, and with the proper environment,
she is ready for fun and nonsense. Usually keeping her decided

Remember a certain hard fought faculty-student baseball game?
That was Olive pitching for us. Remember the time you were

to do this work quickly and well, a keen interest in sports, a
spontaneous sense of humor and an infectious grin — these are the
things which mean to us— "O. Day."

Little and cute with a friendly smile. Edna speaks slowly and
deliberately, but her speaking voice has a lilt in it, a suggestion of a

Her remarks, wittily yet convincingly expressed, offer food for thought.
She's an ardent knitting enthusiast and has some enviable results.

He has ideas on everything from history, through calculus, to food.
Jimmie is as indispensable in the social affairs of the college as he

The careful planning in her own living is reflected in the way
Dutchie runs her several extra-curricular activities; and it contributed
to the success of Mardi Gras. One of the species rara of natural
blondes, she dresses well, displaying good taste here as everywhere
else. Despite her faithful study habits, she is one of those strange
people who find time to read the latest literature. It was Dutchie's
problem to plan our social calendar, and although this took time, it
in no way interfered with her own social calendar.

This all-around athlete is the junior edition of his coach. Besides
a grand record on the athletic field, Al had taken time to try his hand
at the art of living. Even though his sense of humor may be doubted,
his love of a good time can never be. His serious side is manifested
by his work in math and science. Al's camera has stored away for
him not only fame, but the most complete record of the class' four
years at Bridgewater.

Here's a fellow who thrives on work and trouble. This true son

Efforts devoted conscientiously toward getting the most out of
her college education have earned Mary commendable results. Al-

Blond, wholesome good-looks identify Helen and when you hear

of Helen of Troy in the play competition proves her cleverness and wit.
Helen figures and figures on office accounts, and beams when "they

Gayly cynical, Lilly is, surprisingly enough, one of the youngest
members of our class. A person of quickly changing moods, she has
her ups and downs. Her dry humor, punctuated with raised eye-
brows and a knowing laugh, adds spice to her comments in science

eyed blondes with a peach-and-cream complexion. She spends her
spare time concocting a delicious spaghetti dinner or, when the mood
is upon her, dashing off some really good poetry.

Mr. Reynolds' Girl Friday, Because Marge has developing talent
and sincere appreciation of art, she takes every available art course.
She matches her roommate grin for grin, but not limb for limb. Her

Marge gives time and care to her extra-curricular duties. Flowers,
sports, and out-of-door life are minor enthusiasms to her major — art.

Small, dark and pleasant is the keeper of the Women's Athletic

As one of the loveliest members of our class, Betty has had her
even features preserved for the enjoyment of posterity in the form of
a clay replica. Whether over at the gym showing the dancing en-

rapid movements, ready laugh, and lively conversation.

Possessing an unusual singing and speaking voice, Alice has not
limited her talents to her music and literature classes, but has been
prominent in dramatic productions and musical organizations. With
a calm nonchalance she offers her decided opinions on the topic

A musical stand-out. As a good tenor and a better pianist Walter
successfully combines his background of Beethoven and Gershwin
in addition to composing a la Hannigan. Unfortunate are those who

he is serious he's very serious, and when you're blue "Doc" can ad-

ed over the room, and tapping typewriters prove she has a drop of
printer's ink in her veins. A glutton for subjects she elects history,
sciences, and English.
President of French Club, Treasurer of Alpha, Secretary of Men's
Rossum's Universal Robot from New Bedford transferred here
from Assumption. Besides being our pitching standby in baseball
and the man behind the scenes in boxing and intramural baseball
games, Ed can step out of character and play a despicable villain for
Dramatic Club productions. Efficient in business matters and cap-
able and contributive in French Club affairs, Ed does all in his silent

The man's man who decided to present a new edition of himself
senior year, Charlie's achievements have been athletic and literary, —
veteran back in soccer, number one on the tennis team, field man
in track, and coach and critic in dramatic fields. As president of
A. A. we found him combining experience and ability. C. Shaw is
noted for his philosophy, puns, parties, and pals. His angel-mania
is revealed in the typically Shavian toast "Gentlemen, the Queen."
President of Kindergarten-Primary Club, Campus Comment, Wom-
en's Athletic Association
One of the nicest persons in the class is Madeline. She shows a
graciousness of manner and a personal appearance of taste and neat-
ness. A rich, spontaneous chuckle shows her appreciation of a good
story or joke. Interested in primary grades Madeline has worked
for the development of the K. P; working in the garden also appeals
to her. The lucky recipient of many letters from home containing
jokes and cartoons Madeline posts them on her window blotter for
the amusement of visitors.

His cocky felt hat and Gorham jacket tack the adjectives of "dap-
per" and "sporty" to his name. Cliff spends a good deal of time
transporting our athletic teams or studying in the geology room for
"the Colonel". A likable nature has won him a host of friends in
this short year with us.
Glee Club, Library Club, French Club
An apparently studious girl who does her playing at home week
ends. Knits like Madam DeFarge and can finish a sweater in no time
flat. Her radio imitation of hysterical laughter startles unless one
is warned. Marion is a crackerjack forward in basketball and an avid
reader of contemporary novels. Although she loves to dance, her
demonstrations of the latest steps are apt to be variations or im-
provisations on the original step.
Day Student Council, Hobby Club, Kindergarten-Primary Club
Although always laughing and ready for fun, Mary has an extra-
ordinary capacity for worrying, for she is not easily satisfied. Friendly
and pleasant, she nevertheless stubbornly argues her points. A
member of the Rockland gang, Mary much prefers dancing to giving
Secretary of Kindergarten-Primary Club
"Naomie" is busy yet jolly — two characteristics by which you
may know the "assistant dean". A welcome addition to the dormitory
in her sophomore year, as a senior she capably took over the dictator-
ship of Woodward for eight weeks. Her New England conscience is
happily modified by a refreshing sense of the ridiculous, and to hear
her laugh is to laugh yourself. To add a final merry touch, Naomi
is a true jitterbug, and to watch her reactions to a swing record is
one of the delights of the dormitory. /Z * //

Secretary of Tillinghast, Treasurer of Science Club, W. A. A. Board
Although Joe is never smileless, she lives as if she had a purpose
in life. A hard worker and a good student, she is meticulous in
thought and action. As the two-thirds of that Tillinghast trium-
virate, Connors and Farnham, have learned through experience,
Joe can argue well and unfemininely. One secret of her success is
that she takes good notes, can read her own writing, and uses the
notes. Interested in the athletic program, she drives a volley ball
almost into the floor and her returns in badminton almost singe
the feathers off the bird.

Dark hair and eyes, sparkling teeth and rosy cheeks, together
with her bright clothes, give Clara a colorful appearance. Argu-
mentative and loquacious, she adds spice and vigor to any class dis-
cussion. Her personal and candid opinions freely expressed and ac-
companied by a disarming smile keep the class in stitches. Clara
spends the rest of her energy on skating and swimming.
Vice-President of Woodward,
Vice-President of Library Club, Social
Pleasing personality, nice clothes, and keen sense of humor —
that's Fran. Recognized by her peculiar IVIilton drawl and her own
individual style of writing. One of the constant stragglers from
Wood who arrives to class late. Her hobbies — bowling, playing cards,
dancing, going to plays, and wearing ankle socks. Woodward's
likable fire captain, whose chief ambition is to have a fire drill at two
o'clock in the morning.
President of Dormitory Council, Treasurer of Kindergarten-Primary
Known for her sincerity and naive manner. Her loves include
tricky hats, ping-pong, taking pictures, and playing Chinese Checkers,
behind the protection of a lite cut sign. The "vie" in her room is a
magnet for swing fans. Ambitious and energetic, Jean loves to dance
and spreads enjoyment by her infectious good spirits. A ten page
booklet of thoughts, stories, and jokes collected and written during
the knitting of a face cloth is a preliminary to her ambition to write
a book. Jean is a star pupil of Mr. Doner and a chronic hair twister.

Brown-eyed, soft-voiced, and demurely pretty, Helen belies an
old adage, for there is a well-trained mind behind her charming
appearance. A combination New- York-Cape-Cod accent is one of
her characteristics, drama and the arts are her particular interests
(remember her as David Copperfield's mother), and pitcher collect-
ing is her hobby. Her best friends will tell you of her power to make
them giggle when they most need cheering up.
Art Editor of Alpha, Chairman of the Civic Committee, Library Club
Ruth always has her work done because of the excellent power
of concentration she possesses. Besides accomplishment in required
subjects she has been successful in sketching and handicrafts. She
has contributed artistic ideas for many of our formal dances, for the
year book, for posters, for the decoration of rooms for social affairs.
Decided in her ideas and opinions Ruth is self-sufficient and in-
dependent. From the confusion of dormitory life she chooses to
have a few friends rather than a large circle of acquaintances.

Tiny and neat, everything about Louise is in its proper place from
her hair to her library notes. In her matter-of-fact way she briskly
gets things done. A friend in need, she has been a blessing to many a
committee chairman. Having caught the ping-pong craze from her
almost equally tiny sidekick, she now offers plenty of competition
during spare moments. Her pleasant smile breaks forth easily into
a delightful chuckle.

Irene has been a welcome addition to our class this year, and she
has won many friends through her charm and friendliness. She
attended Wheaton College for two years and then spent three years
at the Wheelock School. Following her graduation, she taught in
a nursery school until coming to Bridgewater for her degree. Judg-
ing from her activities here, it is easy to see that Irene's chief interests
are literature, dramatics, knitting, and children.
President of Topics of the Day Club, Elections
Our big, brave, blushing Marine. Henry swears that someday
he'll be a dictator with fifty per cent of the class of '39 as his much
needed private body guard. Meanwhile we expect he'll continue his
regular performance as a good all-around Boy Scout. Henry certain-
ly did us a good deal by putting into effect an excellent program for
Topics of the Day. Unforgettable— his knees sticking into your back,
enlightening asides, and history outlines in room 12. ,
President of Tillinghast Dormitory, Treasurer of Garden Club, Glee
Short, dark, and mature, Kay is a person of importance in Til-
linghast where she has gained the friendship of all. She makes a
precise appearance with her smooth dark hair and sharply defined
features. Her attitude is one of genuineness and sincerity. Kay's
work in classes shows her to be sure of herself, exact in her knowledge,
and capable of searching analysis of problems. Shopping trips to
Brockton are one of her diversions. Perhaps the most noticeable
features about her are the intenseness of her brown eyes and the
perfection of her teeth.
News Editor of Campus Comment, Glee Club, Women's Athletic
Miriam's nose for news and her amazing capacity for finding out
what's what and who did it have made her a competent news editor
for Campus Comment. As alive as her red hair, she capably conducts
club meetings or follows her cultural pursuits, taking in operas,
plays, and exhibits. Other interests include traveling, dancing,
skiing, camping, and entertaining. As enthusiastic in her friend-
ships as in her activities, Miriam expresses her opinions subtly but
President of Woodward, Dormitory Council, Kindergarten-Primary
As a "benevolent despot" of Woodward Barb performs her duties
so that the girls enjoy her reign and Miss Henderson keeps calm.
Her room has won fame as the place to find the tools, the "vac", the
keys, a crate of oranges, and the latest books. She often holds the
fourth hand in Wood's second floor bridge brigade and shows a weak-
ness for Chinese Checkers. Pleasant, smiling, and well groomed,
Barb goes about her duties capably and confidently. She should
adopt her successful combination of black skirt and sweater lightened
by a string of pearls as a uniform. Clothes from the house of Torrey
show that Barb takes time out to sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam.
President of Glee Club, Dormitory Council, Orchestra
Tall, blond and dignified — unless you happen to catch her play-
ing pillow football in the "corridor stadium" of Wood. Her cor-
respondence from Alabama is always penned in green — the comple-
ment of "red". Bit directs the fortress of the Glee Club and plays
the violin for her own amusement. A true representative of her race
Bit has beautifully wavy, blond hair, Swedish blue eyes and fair com-
plexion. A Swedish streak of stubbornness crops^but in her con-
tribution to class discussions.
Chairman of Chapel Committee, Orchestra, Campus Comment
Everyone in Bridgewater knows Dot and Dot knows everyone in
Bridgewater. She's a follower of shipping news and a lover of nautical
things. Dot has shown interest in mountain climbing, art, tennis,
and music. She is proficient in our dormitory specialty — talking
by the hour— but she arranges her time to include study courses she
has chosen for their content value. Economics mean something
in her young life, and Dot keeps an account book to prove it. Purely
personal piffle— long hair, smiling eyes, lovely teeth.

latest motif is Mexican. Although she skis enthusiastically in New
Hampshire, Lib thinks it necessary to diet in school. Conscientiously
she devotes time to reading, library and art courses. Lib has kept up
a faithful interest in German for four years. Quiet in manner she
finds great enjoyment in inveterate reading. Lib stays at the dorm

She has eyes that close when she giggles, which is often, and a
waist that delights those who are buxom. Barb is often worried
about little things but always ends by laughing them off. They in-
vented the word "piquant" for her. She adds to the gayety of math
and music classes. But she'll always be remembered as the "Baby
Snooks" of the geography and geology classes.
Topics of the Day Club, Women's Athletic Association
The exuberant member of Woodward's third floor who wakes her
neighbors graciously with early morning warblings. Red is her
favorite color and enthusiasm her hobby. However, she takes re-
sponsibility and loves it as an "assistant to the dean." A bubbling
two-octave laugh, electric personality, sudden expression and as sud-
den reserve, and such snappy eyes, belong to Esther alone.
Glee Club, Choir, W. A. A. Board
Lib is that subtle humorist from Quincy. Her sly look when
telling a joke or giggling over some bit of wit is a warning to her com-
panions. Lib is known for her pungent frankness and well-thought-
out opinions. This ability to analyze and express vividly and force-
fully her conclusions finds one tangible outlet in her pithy literary
criticism. Another outlet for her powers, clever mimicry, is a source
of enjoyment for her friends. An all-round sportswoman, she con-
centrates on basketball in the winter and swimming in the summer.

THE FIRST FOUR YEARS ARE THE HARDEST
Sept. 11, 1935
Can this be Bridgewater? It is, so they tell me. It took them only five minutes after
I arrived to squash me down the corridor from the rotunda to the auditorium (Horace
Mann, they call it;. Dr Scott brought me out of the fog for five minutes with a wel-
come and a smile. And with a lecture from Miss Davis to brace me up, I went search-
ing thru the halls for Room 24 and Room 13. If I hadn't gotten to class, you couldn't
have blamed me, because I was ducking the sophomore hazing team. I ducked them
by convincing them I was from the junior high next door. But they got me finally
and I've got the monkey cap and green tie.
Sept. 13, 1935
Acquaintance social. My mistake, that good-looking brunette was no upperclass-
man. She was Miss Caldwell of the faculty. There's nothing like starting off with a
bang! But some of the good-lookers are students anyway.
Sept. 25, 1935
Two black eyes, a stiff knee, a missing shirt and ripped underwear. No war, just the
sack rush. My talents were wasted. We lost and Speed Cohen didn't get thrown into
the pond— but Harry Dunn did.
Men's banquet too. Perry's orchestra played — but it didn't click. Never mind, Coul-
ter tried hard enough. No sooner did we get the food down our throats than we had
to drag the sophomores all around town on a buggy-wagon. Grand finale at the Cam-
pus with Verne Olsen doing a Sally Rand for Woodward.
Oct. 13, 1935
Jugo Mastovic attempted to convince Huffington there was a well at the bottom of the
Bridgewater standpipe. He should know, he's a local boy — but Huffy soon learns about
environment — so it was no go.
Nov. 1, 1935
Am I cultured, two lectures in a row! John Martin of the New York Times and the
New York University modern dance group — dancing is what they called it — but Donald
Duck has a better waddle. Anyway the lady dance director could talk with her hands
and I learned from Mr. Martin that they now put chromium plated hand rails in re-
decorated old colonial houses. And only a day to breathe before John Haynes Holmes
had me wondering whether civilization was worth saving. Don't worry, that was
only the title of his address.
Nov. 5, 1935
My first adventure in modern politics. Result; my candidate lost. But after all,
we did get a good class president — Jerry Connor.
Dec. 10, 1935
Our first production — the freshmen banquet. Tuna fish salad in a paper plate bal-
anced on one knee and hot cocoa, mixing with the wax from the paper cup, on the
other. Don't tell me I can't balance a budget now. And the way Cliff Proctor brought
out the co-eds' duck bumps with the health department skeleton. After all when
you look up from a dance and see a skull staring you in the face you get a thrill.
Dec. 19, 1935
The Christmas spirit has hit the faculty — result: a Christmas dinner plus a magician
plus a Christmas play in the auditorium. At least I got the forks right in the dining
hall— thanks to Miss Pope's Ethics.
Jan. 31, 1936
Men's Club play— "Here Comes Charlie". The "Spirit of '39" is getting under way.
Flipto Burnett, Frank Bailey, and Bob Perry all co-starred.
Feb. 5, 1936
Hurray for our side. Defeated Fitchburg 27 to 22 in basketball. And besides had a
bus trip to their domicile.
Feb. 14, 1936
It may be Valentine's Day to you but it's Mardi Gras to me. Snow storm all day —
so no school in the afternoon. Esther Thorley and Steve Lovett crowned queen and
king. Campus Comment copped the float prize with an editor's nightmare.
Feb. 2, 1936
Fire, fire, false alarm.
Ned blew a fuse but caused no harm.
The whole town fire department arrived at Boyden to put out a short circuit. Saved
all the buildings. No "no school" — no luck.
March 1, 1936
Popeye broke up chorus! Someone let a toy mechanical man run loose in Miss Rand's
class. Class ceased functioning for ten minutes while Popeye walked the aisles.
March 13, 1936 (Friday, too.)
It may be bad luck for you — but we heard the orchestra concert! Amy Ward Durfee,
guest artist. Are we cultured now!
March 21, 1936
Men's Club Varieties. Steve Lovett and gang gave their inimitable imitation of the
girls at a modern dance. A good laugh was had by all.
March 30, 1936
Billy Phelps of Yale spoke on contemporary literature. Told us Gertrude Stein wrote
only one good book and then was so surprised at herself that she has never been able
to write another good one since. (The book was "Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas".)
April 7, 1936
Our second venture in politics. Bill McGhee our class president for next year.
April 14, 1936
Someone let a toy train loose on Violet Karimaki's desk in Dr. Arnold's course. Havoc
raised with Doc's lecture until Vic Johnson came to the rescue and shut the train off.
May 1, 1936
Glee Club put on its show. Bruce Simonds at the piano. If this is great music — let's
have more of it.
May 4, 1936
Miss Rand displayed oil painting by Mr. Reynolds of the Simonds-Glee Club fest. How
that man can paint!
May 15, 1936
Miss Moffitt presented "Merchant of Venice" as a parting gesture. Bongerzone stole
the show with his Shylock. This is what I call drama.
May 29, 1936
Rollo Walter Brown answered the question, "Do We Want Creative Minds in America?"
He proved to us that scrub ladies can write poetry and that wild Indians can paint.
So these are final exams? They may have been a noble experiment but give me less
of them! I'll flunk them anyway! I hope, I hope, I hope.
June 12, 1936
Goodbye to all that. Graduation is over and I've seen my first Ivy March. I'll write
in you again in September.
Sept. 14, 1936
September and Bridgewater again. Gone are Miss Moffitt, Pop Shaw and Miss Stuart.
But Mr. McGurin, Miss Low and Miss Morris are here to take their places. Carlson
and Sanderson join our class.
Sept. 28, 1936
Pants missing, underwear ripped to pieces, torn ligaments, scratched face, but who
cares? We won the sack rush — five to four.
Nov. 5, 1936
The college goes intellectual. Miss Low presents her first Dramatic Club production—
"Where the Cross is Made" — in chapel.
Oct. 28, 1936
Boston Symphony woodwind ensemble for the Culture Fund. Miss Rand, in seventh
heaven, runs in angelic circles. Her smiles will crack her jaw bones if she doesn't
Oct. 30, 1936
Harding and Olsen play Landon and Roosevelt in chapel. Jagello tags along as Thomas
and Lemke. Topics of the Day takes a straw vote and Landon finds himself atop the
pole by 19 votes.
Nov 3, 1936
Landon, like the mixed-up telephone man, found he was at the top of the wrong pole.
Wes Coulter is displaying a long face and a thin pocketbook. Twenty-one bucks could
buy a good many gallons of gasoline, Wes.
Dec. 4, 1936
The Harvard University Orchestra arrived on thescene, and we wentformal. GleeClub-
bers introduced to the Harvardians at a special reception. No wonder the increase in
applications for Glee Club membership last week among the girls.
Dec. 18, 1936
The Women's Glee Club broadcast over the radio. Seats in Tillinghast reception
room sold out hours ahead of time. Good squawking, if you should ask me. Gives
you that ole Christmas spirit.
Dec. 22, 1936
A rush on Emily Post in the library lately. Faculty Christmas dinner tonight. Again
I kept the forks straight. But how the spoons threw me. Speed Cohen seen running
after the crowd left, picking up abandoned peanuts. The fellows tried faculty sere-
nading tonight. Sang Christmas carols under their windows. Result — donuts,
coffee, cookies, candy, and cake. Doc Arnold sound asleep when we got there — but
who could blame him— it was 2:00 A. M.
Jan. 7, 1937
C2 presented a shadow play about Wally Simpson. Proctor dubbed "Gone with the
Windsor" and was appointed regisseur. Pun of the month — Queen Mary says, "This
is a dukes of a mess."

Jan. 22, 1937
Sophomore-Junior Prom. I skipped.
Jan. 29, 1937
Second semester starts with new early classes at 8:15. Commuters rise at 5:15 A. M.
to catch the proper trains. Beds at a premium in every classroom. Ho! Hum!
Feb. 5, 1937
Men's Club "Full House". Skipped again. Will have to make out an anti-social
calendar, if I'm not careful.
March 19, 1937
Orchestra concert. Earle Spicer croons "Shortnin' Bread" and brings down the house.
Miss Rand all smiles again.
March 30, 1937
Rockwell Kent told us he painted Alaskan mountains as triangles because they looked
as though they wanted to be triangles. Whimsical philosophy.
April 15, 1937
Another modern dance program. This time by our local artists. I still don't know
what half of the prancing means. But by the time I've seen three or four more of
these things I think I'll begin to like them.
April 28, 1937
The greatest event yet. Carl Sandburg spoke on folksongs and tall tales — and can he
Of fog so thick we shingled the barn and six feet out on the fog,
Of a mountain railroad curve where the engineer in his cab can touch the caboose
and spit in the conductor's eyes,
Of the old man's whiskers: "When the wind was with him his whiskers arrived a
day before he did"
According to Carl Sandburg, West Point wonders if this is poetry, Dartmouth says it
is history and uses it as a textbook, but he himself doesn't know. This is an event
we'll all be telling to our grandchildren fifty years from now.
April 30, 1937
Celia Gomberg displayed a long green scarf and played a violin for us at the Glee Club
concert. She did some capable fiddling and the Glee Club did some capable singing,
but I'll never forget that green scarf.
May 14, 1937
Rumors have been flying thick and fast the past few weeks. Rumors we have been
hoping are far from true. But today they proved only too true. Dr. Scott is leaving
us. He is going to Louisville, Ky. to be superintendent of schools. It is a great loss
for Bridgewater, but a distinct gain for Louisville.
June 5, 1937
Biennial. Alumni parading. Speeches, speeches and more speeches. Big feed in
Tillinghast — and half of the class working behind the scenes as waiters and dish-wash-
ers. Old-fashioned gymnastics revived in the gymnasium to show alumni how they
used to act when they were here. Dumbbell swinging was the thing in those days.
June 9, 1937
The best day of June — Sophomore girls shaking caterpillars from oak boughs.
Sept. 15, 1937
Hi, diary. Here I am back again. Uncle John Kelly is our new president and Mr.
Davoren, from the State House, is down here to sign the men's absence slips and
fulfill the other duties of the office of dean of men. Dr. Maxwell, from the Boston
school system, is down here to teach in the lit. dept. and start the graduate school
going. No kidding, the graduate school is really starting after centuries of talking.
Doc Arnold, by the way, is co-graduate-school-operator — which will mean more wear
and tear for his head.
Sept. 29, 1937
Miss Smith has announced that she is going to leave us for a sabbatical year at Harvard.
Sept. 30, 1937
Dr. Howard Haggard, of "Devils, Drugs, and Doctors" fame, came down from Yale
today to lecture to us on "Medical Fads and Superstitions." We learned that it is
not only the debutantes who have debutant's slouch and that it's not a good thing
to have. He gave us the Latin name for the animal — but you can't expect me to re-

Oct. 4, 1937
Miss Smith announced that she thinks she'll stay at Harvard.

in Miss Smith's wall rack without getting out of his chair.
Oct. 10, 1937
Miss Smith back, Mr. Moss gone.
Oct. 11, 1937

Miss Smith back to say good-bye. Miss Mahoney has decided to stay here and Miss
Smith has decided to stay there.
Nov. 2, 1937
Dr. Ch'ao-Ting Chi arrived to discuss the Chinese situation. We learned that there
was a war in China and that Japan was the aggressor. The Chinese Communist ques-
tion made his face red.
Dec. 6, 1937
Blanche Yurka (Madam Defarge to you) was dressed in a glittering blue gown — and
wow, what a personality — it outglittered the glittering gown. After introducing us to
Congreve's "Way of the World", and telling us how she knew Mary Pickford when, she
came out in all the full glory of her immortal Madam Defarge. Dear Diary, this is
what I call acting.
Dec. 13, 1937
Charlie Shaw gave a lecture on advanced paper folding in Miss Low's class. We all
know how to make a toy hat or a toy boat out of an old New York Times.
Dec. 14, 1937
A training School child announced this morning that there was to be no school this
afternoon because the president was going to be electrocuted. But to translate that
into adult English, Mr. Kelly is to be inaugurated as our college president. First an
academic procession with a supermeligorgeous display of faculty caps and gowns and
ribbons. A sheaf of speeches wherein someone summed up our prexy to a "T"— "liberal
enough to be progressive, conservative enough to be valid." A reception with orchids
and gowns, white ties and tails, frosted crumbs and pinwheel sandwiches, in the Boy-
den Gymnasium. The Christmas dinner at Tillinghast wherein I again got my forks
mixed but got the food straight. Afterwards a procession of Orientals to the tune of
Handel's Largo in the Horace IVIann. Then the annual serenading of the faculty by
the men. A cold night but they all survived the coffee and cigars passed out to them.
And a final goodnight with a carol fest and an "Alma Mater" on the front steps of
Boyden as the dormitory girls sleepily echoed the tunes from their beds.
Jan. 27, 1938
Hanya Holm arrived with six assistants. Say, I'm beginning to like this modern dance
— even the duck waddles. And I'm liking it even more since I've found out that Hanya
is to present this same program in Jordan Hall, Boston at $1.50 a ticket next week,
while I'm seeing it for nothing.
Feb. 4, 1938
The Men's Club went to town with a tragi-comedy called "The First Year". Earl
Haggerty and Kay Flaherty walked off with the leads and Mary Lou Quigley did a superb
performance as a last minute emergency substitute.
Feb. 11, 1938
Mardi Gras again and this time with decent weather. Boyden Gym went Riviera in
the light of the moon. Clem Daley and Polly Hull were crowned king and queen.
Everyone went gay with a battle of flowers. And festivities ended with the crowning
of King Lent alias Ed Senesac.
March 8, 1938
Dr. Yutaka Minakuchi arrived to discuss the Chinese situation from the Japanese
angle and told us there wasn't any— situation I mean— and if there was, that Russia
was the aggressor if it wasn't China.
March 16, 1938
Robert Peter Tristram Coffin and his moustache arrived. He told us that when he
wanted to write a poem he always headed for a barn "for there is always a poem there" —
and I add, if you want to read about a barn, go to R.P.T.C.'s poetry for there is always
a barn there.

The Todd Fund reached its height when it gathered together representatives of three
faiths; Father Reynolds, Rabbi Glazer, and Rev. Jennings, to discuss the "Future for
Intergroup Relations in America". I think we all learned to better appreciate our
neighbor, whatever his faith.

S.C.A. held its election and Connie — Sanderson of course — came out tops, with her
room mate, Dutchie, and commuter Mary Judge as vice presidents.

Paper bag passed from one to another turned out to be a surprise package for Mr. Hunt
until Bongerzone picked the green snake from the floor and threw it out the window.
Culprit? That's what Mr. Hunt would like to know.
April 29, 1938
More music. This time the Glee Club concert with Howard Goding at the piano. Miss
Rand was at her best as usual and Goding on an excellent program.
May 3, 1938
Still more music. This time the Lecture Fund presenting the W.P.A. Forum String
Quartet and precipitating local musical storm with the playing of Piston's "Quartet
No. 1 in C Major." Some say you can't call that stuff music. But, boy how I go for
it. These W.P.A.ers aren't half bad.
May 13, 1938
More politics— or should I say elections. Bill McGhee arrives on top again as our
senior year president. Congrats, Bill— and do as good a job as you've done up to now!
May 16, 1938
Phil Farnham took a stocking-foot parade from Mr. Davoren's room to Miss Mahoney's
when a friend walked off with his shoes. Judy finally found the glass slippers and
returned them to the Cinderella boy.
May 26, 1938
Still more music — I must be getting cultured — at least I'm not getting fed up with it.
By the way, this time it was the Federal Music Project Brockton Band. We needed
cotton stuffing for our ears because of the Horace Mann reverberations but the familiar
selections didn't sound so bad when they were swung. Horace Donovan stole the show
with a xylophone solo. How the jitterbugs loved to watch those fingers go.
June 4, 1938
Class picnic — and a boat trip down Narragansett Bay to Block Island. Pig tackling,
rain, shore dinners, and seasickness combined to make an experience I'll never forget.
The salt air certainly took the starch out of our class.

After a terrible night wondering whether I'd won or lost my bet on the church steeple.
No school!!! I wandered down to the lower campus to watch the N.Y.A.ers saw up

Library Club, coached by Jane Austin, wins the three one-act play contest sponsored
by the Men's Athletic Association. The M.A.A. presentation gave us Helen Edwards

Ed "Billy the Boy Artist" Payne hopped half of Dickens' characters out of his memory
on to an artist's easel and then obliged with sketches of Connie Sanderson with glasses
nesting in her bangs, Mr. Durgin with a smile, and Vic Johnson with a red face.
The gentleman from Waids, taking the class pictures, took one look at Lilly Fischer
and fainted. It must be her smile that got him — the "killer diller."

Woodwardites swipe cheese from the dining hall and set out trap lines, so now their

Dr. Faustus hit the deck in a not so bad Federal Theatre performance in Horace Mann
Auditorium. Audience was amused by explosions and fires, the clown, and two mem-
bers of the chorus, one in the right end and one on the left. Hope some school pro-
duction might obtain such settings and lights.
Dec. 15, 1938
Christmas Banquet in close-cramped quarters. The hurricane not only blew some
trees away, but it also blew some staging in— at Tillinghast anyways. After minutes
of weary waiting, Parkinson broke the ice and started us eating. Was his face red
when Fleming announced it to the gang!

Al Dorosz wins by the nose in the Men's Club pie-eating contest. Mr. Durgin gets
left out in the custard. But everyone had a good time.

Mr. Reynolds started wielding a snow shovel and Walter Houston was the result. Cliff
Reilly got jealous and started on his own — a snow Sphinx was the result. The Campus

Saw the famous Sammy after using his "Europe" as a Junior textbook. The Dutch-
man pleaded that regarding nations we "protect the young, tolerate the dynamic,
and let the old die in peace." He upset the calm of Huffy's geog classes but compli-
mented the college on the students it sent to Clark.
March 13, 1939
It's a white winter, snow since Friday night means no school today. The snow babies
shoveled snow at 30 cents per, organized snow ball fights, or went for long two-some
walks. Miss Mullen added insult to injury by repeating Friday's dessert again — snow
March 31, 1939
Last day of training, but somehow I don't want to leave. No more lesson plans, dry
lunches, or six o'clock awakenings. But also no more "we want a trainer", social chats
with worshipping pupils, or high signs as I pass thru the halls. Praise be, I am a teacher.
May 2-7, 1939
No time to write until tonite — Sunday about ninety arty people did New York. Gog-

They are a happy gang, these graduate students. And they have their studious
moments too. Some of them we have known in their previous years at Bridgewater.
With the others we have soon become acquainted. It is only a year they have been
with us as a group, but we have already formed many fast friendships.

Having risen from the obscurity of the sophomore year, the Jolly Juniors had their first professional exper-
ience. Training School until this year, so remote, suddenly became very real and was anticipated with all degrees
of expectation. After the first few days of wondering what it was all about, we began to apply the theory we had
been absorbing for the past two years and to learn devices and procedures. After eight weeks in the Training
School, we came back to the Administration Building with a newly acquired sense of dignity, a slightly profession-
al air, and a new appreciation of method and cultural courses.

Having suffered last year the indignities accorded the freshman at college, it was our turn in the fall to wreak
our revenge upon the incoming freshmen. Enjoying to the utmost our first taste of authority and importance
we planned and executed a fitting initiation program for the first week back at college. At the end of the week,
however, we closed the initiation by entertaining the freshmen at a party held in the Gymnasium at which there
was mutual cooperation between the two classes. Many new talents were discovered, friendships were made
and general good feeling prevailed.
The big social event of the year was the Crystal Snow Ball which the sophomores and the juniors arranged
together. It was our first opportunity to help manage a large affair, and the support on the part of willing in-
dividuals and the class as a whole was most gratifying. A large part of the class danced in the Gymnasium which
was transformed into the northern setting, to the music of Art Davis' orchestra and witnessed the selection of
the Snow Queen. A committee of judges made up of members of the faculty honored one of the lovelier members
of our class with the choice. .
The class showed equal enthusiasm in supporting its annual social. Since it coincided w.th *■ P»*"ck.
Day, it was only fitting that it be a Shalelah Shuffle. A typical Irish country scene was reproduced m the Gym-
nasium with green the predominating color.
As the final event of the year, the class outing took the form of a boat trip. Enthusiastic accounts by the
large number who went are proof of an eventful and thoroughly enjoyable day.
We as sophomores have passed the half-way mark and are already looking forward to doing bigger and better
things in the future. As individuals and as a class we hope to make the most of the many opportumt.es wh.ch
Our first year at college has been an exciting and eventful one. Every attempt was made by the older stu-
dents to make us feel at home and a part of Bridgewater. The bewilderment of the first day was lessened by the
obliging seniors who took us in hand and guided us about the college. The Big Sisters into whose care every
freshman girl was given also helped us to find our way, familiarizing us with customs and traditions, and im-
parting to us invaluable advise and information. The Big Sister — Little Sister party held later on in the fall
encouraged many a friendship with games and refreshments.
During the freshman initiation which lasted throughout our first week, the merciless sophomores required
all women to wear green sun glasses, green ribbons in straight hair, and large name cards in front and back. The
men in green ribbon ties and monkey caps provided much amusement at the expense of dignity, in front of the
Administration Building. The sophomores showed their better natures, however, when they played host to the
freshman class at a party which featured games, supper, dancing, and entertainment Each freshman di won
wa Quired to make up a song upon which a committee composed of faculty members passed J^g-ent. In-

only members of our own class, but also upperclassmen and faculty members. The Freshman Soc.al gave us
our opportunity to return the hospitality of the other classes. The traditional Chnstmas Banquet was a mem-

The Student Co-operative Association is the most important and active organization of this college. Every
student automatically becomes a member of the association upon entrance.
Meetings are held the first Friday of every month. Regular and punctual attendance is maintained so that
the work at hand progresses rapidly and efficiently.
The organizations represented on the Student Council are as follows: 1. Class Presidents; 2. Representatives
from the divisions of all classes; 3. President of Day Student and Dormitory Council; 4. President of Men's Club;
5. Executive Editor of "Campus Comment"; 6. Chairman of Standing Committees; and all officers of Student
The Council conducted a drive at Christmas time to collect money for the needy.
The whole council was ready at any time to extend hospitality to any visitors that came to visit our college.
It is notable that our Council started a movement for left-armed chairs for left-handed people. We were very
fortunate to have lessons in Parliamentary Law given to us by the Dean of Men, Mr. John L. Davoren.
A student delegation was sent to the New England Teacher-Preparation Association and in the Spring an-
other delegation attended the Convention of Eastern Professional Schools for Teachers.

To regulate the social life at college, the Social Calendar for the entire year was completed and posted soon
after the opening of college in September. To develop and maintain high spirits of thought and action through-
out the college, the Elections Committee carried on all college elections very efficiently.
The members proved to be more than helpful in contributing their services to make "Open House" and Alum-
ni Week-end exceptionally successful. The "World's Fair" — formal dance, held on December second, was the
most outstanding accomplishment of its social calendar.
Profits realized from various activities have helped greatly to provide furniture for two new recreation rooms,
in Tillinghast and Woodward Dormitories. These rooms should enhance the fine tradition of student fellowship
characterized by this, our college.
The organization strives continually to improve the standards of Bridgewater Teachers College. This year
the members have worked constantly to raise the standard of the honor system. With the fine cooperation of
the faculty, we feel that this was a significant accomplishment.
Students are encouraged, at all times, to present problems and suggestions that pertain to student life and
student welfare. This year the decisions and problems brought before the association have been discussed open-
ly, and have been acted upon without faculty assistance.
Frank Bailey, Secretary
The number of girls living in the dormitories this year was much greater than it had been for the past few
years with every available room occupied. However, everyone was helpful and cooperative, especially for Open
House, Alumni Week-end, and when repairs had to be made as a result of the devastating hurricane of last Sep-
This year we have improved our dormitory by adding new rugs and pictures to our reception rooms and by
establishing and equipping a Social Activities Room, where men and women may get together on weekend nights
for games, dancing, or social hours.
Regular house meetings were held once a month by the dormitories at which time any questions or sugges-
tions which the girls had were discussed, and problems raised at Dormitory Council meetings were presented.
We tried to have some form of entertainment at every house meeting this year, with members of all classes offer-
ing their talents.

This year we had an active council made up of the officers and twenty representatives of the day students.
The council was elected by a new system. A special committee chose ten names from each class and from this
number the student body elected five to represent the freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior classes in the
In October, we held our annual "Big-Little Sister Party" in the Commuters' Room. The faculty was given
a chance to get acquainted with the freshmen, participate in the games, and enjoy the doughnuts and cider.
In our kitchen a colorful set of dishes has been added to the service for eight which we already had. In the
Commuters' Room the tables and chairs have been painted to match the rest of the room, murals have been
painted, and cheerfully colored drapes hung at the windows. For the convenience of the girls in the Social Room,
a small maple eight-day clock has been added.
We had a style show under the direction of Rose Leonard who, with professional models from B.T.C., exhibited
the latest in fashions for women. This was followed by a series of lectures by professional women who gave dem-
onstrations on the latest hair-dos; how to make-up, and how to wear the most suitable clothes for our particular
Everyone turned out for the Commuters' Social on March Tenth, and for Open House at which parents of
the students had an opportunity to renew acquaintances with the faculty and to observe some work and changes
that have taken place during the year. The entertainment took place in the gymnasium under the direction
of the physical education department, and was followed by a reception in Tillinghast Dormitory.

"S'instruire en s'amusant" est le but du Cercle Frangais, qui se compose de quarante membres infiniment
interesses en tout ce qui est frangais. Ces membres trouvent leur source d'inspiration dans les deux mots
"Charite" et "Fraternite".
L'initiation des nouveaux membres, qui a eu lieu dans la salle reception de Tillinghast, comme d'habitude,
fut tres impressive et inoubliable. Les seances de cette annee ou Ton etudia la vie de quelques grands person-
nages frangais, notamment Marie Antoinette et Louis XIV, furent instructifs aussi bien qu'amusants.
Deux des membres furent envoyes a la seance de la Modern Language Association a Simmons. Un bon nombre
se rendit aux films frangais a I' University de Harvard et beaucoup des plus interesses saisirent I'occasion de lire
quelques livres frangais de notre bibliotheque, surtout "Sous les Pieds de L'Archange", la plus recente acquisition.
Au Bridge, auquel chaque membre amena son ami, on se rejouit de I'occasion de bavarder a son soul. De
beaux prix furent distribues a trois joueurs heureux.

L'eclatante piece de Moliere — "Le Medecin Malgre Lui" — f ut presentee a la salle d'assemblee a une des seances
de Cercle, auquel furent invites aussi les amis des membres. Tous etaient de I'avis qu'elle etait un succes fou,
et d'avantage, qu'il fallait faire honneur aux acteurs pour leurs bonnes representations. Un petit resume fait
en frangais servit a faire comprendre la piece.
Un pianiste experiments franco-americain, qui nous entretint pendant une heure avec plusieurs agreables
selections de compositeurs frangais, fut presents a une autre de nos seances.
On cSlebra avec un programme de varietes le jour de poisson d'avril.
D'avantage, les membres firent un voyage a Boston en avril, et assisterent a un film frangais. Ms visiterent
aussi quelques musees, et dinerent a un restaurant frangais. On espere faire ce voyage une occasion annuelle.

Library Club carried on a full and varied program from the usual impressive initiation to the lively closing
entertainment. Among books reviewed and discussed, the club particularly enjoyed "The Education of Hyman
Kaplan" by Lionel Ross, "Alone" by Admiral Bird, and "Horse and Buggy Doctor" by Dr. Arthur E. Hertzler.
Our faculty advisers, Miss Carter and Miss Vining, told us particularly of the advantages of the Heritage Club
books. One meeting devoted to reviews was made especially lively by charades of titles — notable among these
were "Pygmalion" and "Disputed Passage".
In anticipation of the Federal Theatre Project production of "Dr. Faustus" we discussed the life of Marlowe
and the plot of the play. For its annual trip to a Boston Theatre, the club this year chose to see Helen Hayes in
"Victoria Regina" on January 11. Considering the lively discussion at the next meeting one might well con-
clude that the club enjoyed the production. We found it particularly interesting to compare the version we saw
to the "Victoria" of Lytton Strachey.
Following another tradition the Library Club gave its usual assistance during Book Week. Members were
on duty mostly for the display of fiction in Miss Hill's room but also helped in the library. Another tradition
much enjoyed was the annual speaker from Emerson to which a large number of guests was invited. The club
also revived an old custom of hot dog sales in the dormitory as well as holding a very successful food sale in the
rotunda, upholding our reputation of being good cooks as well as good readers. On Valentine's Day everyone en-
joyed the original verses accompanying the gifts exchanged and all learned something new and interesting about
old customs. Games and refreshments completed one of the most successful evenings of the year.
After several members had seen "Pygmalion" they exchanged ideas on it for our benefit and gave us interest-
ing side lines while the group took turns reading aloud from the play. Another group activity long awaited and
truly as grand in realization as in anticipation was the choric speaking attempt led most ably by Miss Hill.
Most of all, Library Club is proud of that silver cup on display in the library. All the members of the cast
and in fact all members of the club worked hard to help the director, Jane Austin, make "Pink for Proposals"
the best one-act play in the competition. We enjoyed producing it and look forward to a continuation of the

Dramatic Club started the year with try-outs for new members and those fortunate enough to be selected,
together with new members chosen the previous spring, were added to the organization. Special pins and station-
ery were awarded the members. The fall was devoted to the preparation and rehearsals for the first production
of the yea'r, "Onward to Happiness". At Christmas time, in keeping with the Yuletide spirit, "Why the Chimes
Rang" was presented in chapel. In the spring, "Annie Laurie" was presented as the final dramatic production
of the year.
Besides offering entertainment for the college, the Dramatic Club enjoyed a pleasant social year. At the
regular meetings, enlightening discussions on drama and dramatics were followed by a social hour. The Christ-
mas party at Tillinghast and the theatre party in May were held for the enjoyment of the whole club. Much of
the success of the club has been due to the time and effort devoted to it by its director, Miss Low.

This year the staff of our college paper, "Campus Comment", successfully inaugurated a bi-monthly pub-
lication. The student body was more responsive because of this change.
The social calendar of the staff has not been active as in past years. In the late fall the group enjoyed an
anniversary tea at the home of Miss Lovett, faculty advisor.
Food sales were held in order to raise funds which would cancel the tentative loan given to each of the dele-
gates attending the Columbia Scholastic Press Conference when "Campus Comment" was awarded third prize.
A style show was presented under our auspices in April in the auditorium. Models were selected from the
student body. A novel culmination, a prom scene, made the style show one to be remembered.
Members of the staff see a promising future for our paper — one of improvement and success.

TOPICS OF THE
Topics of the Day Club began the year with one of the largest memberships ever. The members of all classes
of the college were invited to an open meeting in October to decide if this was a club which they would care to
join. This first meeting was built around the strategic position of Czechoslovakia in relation to Germany and
the future of this very young republic.
A social get-to-gether to welcome all members and help them get acquainted was in the form a of weenie
roast. Under a very able committee fun, food, and exercise was had by all at the spacious West Bridgewater
Park, an ideal place for any picnic.
Realizing that actual experiences and contacts with people mean much more than the often highly colored
stories from books and periodicals the club has tried to carry out the idea of bringing some good speakers to its
meetings. The first speaker to visit with us this year was Charles Snowgate of the U. S. Marines. From his
experiences in China he told of the people and conditions there and the general attitude of the Chinese to the
Americans. At a later date and using an entirely different topic, Mr. Durgin of the faculty was presented. In
his usual amusing and intelligent manner he spoke about "Bridgewater as I See It".
It is not necessary however that the club have speakers for each of its meetings because the people in the club
are themselves, well versed on the topics of the day. The Jewish Refugee problem, the censorship of the radio
by the Federal Government and the outstanding problems of our world today have been dealt with at various
meetings in a most interesting way. It has been the aim of the club to give all of its members a chance to argue
and ask questions and it encourages this at all times.

At the beginning of the year the members of the student body of the college were invited to visit the initial
club meeting and decide whether they wished to join. About twenty new members from all the classes in the
college were invited to attend the annual initiation party. Games and tricks to test the intelligence and stability
of new members were conducted.
To the delight of nature lovers and hobbyists a nature walk was conducted in the Garden under the super-
vision of Mr. Stearns, club advisor, and an authority on plant and animal life. Humorous and true stories added
to much factual material made the afternoon interesting.
Because of the crowded holiday season at Christmas, Hobby Club broke precedent and held a post-New Year's
Party, which was a marked success. Each member brought in a small gift representing either her own or a
Other meetings have been devoted to speakers, who have unusual and noteworthy avocations. Naturally,
the favorite has been our own Mr. Stearns who has exhibited his coin, stamp, pencil, and button collections —
and followed these with vivid descriptions. Miss Caldwell, of the faculty, spoke on "Physical Education as a
Hobby" and aided those of us who lacked a sports hobby to get busy immediately. From among the student
body, collectors, including Louise Forsyth, Barbara Dobbyn, and Irma Wall have addressed the club.
The hope and theme of Hobby Club is the acquiring of a new hobby or the development of a new one. The
club has a new one in its scrap book project. It is the common objective of the members to work as a group on
scrap books which will be sent to the children's rooms in the nearby hospitals, that they might be enjoyed by many.
Irma Wall, Secretary
"Dig and delve. Dig and delve" is a quotation which very appropriately expressed what the majority of the
meetings of the Garden Club were like this past year. During their gatherings at the green house, the members
could be seen busily at work planting bulbs, making cuttings, or doing other phases of garden work.
At Christmas time the members aided in decorating the auditorium and dormitories.
In addition to work, very interesting cultural programs were held which consisted of a lecture of immediate
interest to all by Mr. Stearns on "Damage done by the Hurricane to Trees" and another talk given by our Presi-
dent, Naomi Simon, on "Flower Gardens for the Home."
Besides the regular meetings the members cooked lunches out-of-doors at the garden fire place.
In the Spring, hundreds of students from the College enjoyed the trips to the Arnold Arboretum and Flower
Show in Boston sponsored by this club. This year the club itself held a flower show. This special feature attrac-
ted many students and teachers who had never visited the garden and greenhouse. Attractive corsages and
plants were sold.
The significance of the TC emblem is imparted to the students only after a year's membership in the club.
Joanna Gonet, Secretary
Science Club has spent a most active year, beginning with the initiation of new members at the West Bridge-
water Memorial Park. A weenie roast was the high spot of the event.
A hike to the Lighthouse at Powder Point Beach was taken in order to collect specimens of shells. These
were used for study, and attempts were made to identify them and classify them. This study also included a trip
to the Museum of Natural History, where Dr. Rice talked to us about shells.
On the more social side of the club's activities was the annual Christmas party held at Miss Graves' home.
Interest in socialized medicine was keen and the members participated in a debate on this subject. We were
fortunate in having Dr. Mandlestam, a local physician, who spoke in favor of it, and Dr. Schwartz, from the State
Farm, who spoke against it.
For its chapel program, the club presented Mr. Carl W. Buckheister, secretary-treasurer of the Massachusetts
Audubon Society, who gave an illustrated lecture on the "Audubon Nature Camp and Its Activities."
Special interest was maintained in current events and new ways and methods in science, in anthropology,
in taxidermy, concerning which we enjoyed a lecture and demonstration, and in the study of and research in
cancer, about which Dr. Bradley gave an illustrated talk.
Spring activities included an all-day trip to Woods Hole, the Bird Day trip to Sharon, and the final picnic.

Kindergarten-Primary Club tries to plan a well-rounded and interesting program for the entire year. In the
fall we started out with an Initiation Party which served to acquaint the new members with the aims and ideals
of the club as well as to give them an enjoyable time.
During the year we have heard the following speakers:
Miss Flora Nolden, Supervisor of the Works Progress Administration Nursery Schools, told us about her work
and how much it contributed to the lives of the children who attended.
Mrs. Edna L. Bedford, Child Consultant of William Filene's Sons Company, spoke on the topic "Growing Up
With Toys". To illustrate her talk, Mrs. Bedford brought along a selection of toys, books, and games.
Miss Helen F. Loud, who is interested in kindergarten, spoke to us on how children can be more successfully
trained in reading readiness in order to meet the requirements set up in the first and second grades.
Miss Ruth Davis, principal of the Bridgewater Training School, spoke about the work expected of trainers
in the elementary grades, both in outside practice teaching and in the training school.
Miss Mary L. Marks, our club advisor and the kindergarten teacher in the training School, told us about the
curriculum of the kindergarten.
For our banquet and final meeting in May, the speaker was Miss Pauline Smith, well known in kindergarten
Our club gives an excellent opportunity to learn new things about the field of kindergarten-primary educa-
tion as well as a chance for an enjoyable social time with other club members.

Student Fellowship is the organization that meets every possible Sunday evening in the Congregational
Church of Bridgewater.
It is for every college student who wishes to broaden his cultural and spiritual outlook.
The general theme of the year has been "Service to Society". Some of the meetings during the year include;
"The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children" with the Secretary of the society as speaker and Chief
Moore of the town police staff telling of his connection with the organization. Superintendent Warren's ex-
planation of his work at the State Farm with a Field Trip Inspection of the Farm by the Student Fellowship;
Rabbi Levi of Brockton who discussed the Jewish situation in a very enlightening fashion; Miss Warburton, a
missionary on furlough, who told about her work in the Phil I ipines; "The Child and his School" discussed by
Miss Meranda Prentiss of the field of Social Service; and Social Problems by prominent persons of the particular
Besides the regular type of meeting, Student Fellowship had a very inspirational Candlelight Communion
Service at Christmas Time; a Sunday morning church service conducted entirely by the club; and an evening
service open to the public.

The aims of Der Deutsche Verein are to have as much conversational German as possible, an understanding
of German culture, and a feeling of Gemutlichkeit.
A realization of these aims comes from various sources. The Pfeiffer family of Brockton entertained us at
our Christmas meeting with songs and stories of German customs. Refreshments of German pastry helped to
make the program complete.
The chapel program won the praises of the faculty and students. The typical Hofbrau scene with singing
waiters and waitresses; the folk dances, accompanied by a swing minded orchestra; the singing of the Schnitzel-
bank by the audience; all these factors contributed to make an interesting program.
Miss Mary Darrah of the John Hancock School in Quincy contributed to our cultural background by giving
us a clearer understanding of life in Germany. Her interesting experiences on her bicycle trip through the coun-
try, her collection of pictures showing the scenic wonders of the country, received our attention.
To terminate the year's program, the club visited some of the Germanic Museums in Boston and had dinner
at the Hofbrau.
The contact of members of the club does not end with the arrival of June. A Round-Robin letter keeps us
informed of our friend's activities during the summer and reveals our ability to write German.

The first part of the Women's Glee Club season was devoted to the preparation of our third radio broadcast
of carols over Station W. E.E.I. After this, practice for the annual spring concert on April twenty-eighth was
begun. We were fortunate in having a well-known concert artist as our guest soloist.
The Choir sang every Friday morning in Chapel.
The largest IVIen's Glee Club in the history of the Organization presented a most successful concert in the
Horace Mann Auditorium on March third. This was the first concert in recent years, and is a step toward the
re-establishment of the concert as an annual presentation.
The A Cappella Group and Nathan Gottschalk, a prominent violinist, assisted in making this concert a success.
The Orchestra gave an ambitious concert March twenty-fourth with the favorite Earle Spicer, baritone, as
guest soloist. Making his second appearance with the orchestra within the past few years, MK Spicer won par-
ticular applause for his presentation of American folk ballads.
We owe our appreciation to our director, Miss Frieda Rand, and our accompanists, Esther Kelley and Alice
Cole, for their skillful and conscientious guidance throughout the year.

A new policy for conducting club business and for providing the club programs was instigated in Camera
Club this year. An executive committee consisting of club officers and four elected club members discharged
all club business. A program committee elected by the club made plans for valuable and interesting meetings.
Professional speakers from such places as the Eastman Company alternated with discussion meetings. The
meeting following that of the speaker was used for analyzing the talk of the speaker. Members then submitted
pictures, to illustrate these new points they received, as a culmination of their work.
A new dark room with new equipment in the basement of Tillinghast has been the club's proudest attain-
ment and the envy of non-members.
Mr. Tyndall's lecture on the British Isles was illustrated by pictures which he took while visiting there and
which were so beautiful that they are still being discussed.
A successful and enjoyable year closed with a club banquet.

Newman Club is organized on a three-fold basis — cultural, social and spiritual. This year has been a diffi-
cult one since the club was handicapped by having no definite meeting place. However, despite this disadvan-
tage, there were a few events of particular interest to the entire group. The Yuletide season brought the Christ-
mas party with its gay entertainment. At this time also the annual Christmas charity basket was again made
up for distribution to the needy.
One of the interesting speakers of the year was Mr. Thomas Dorgan who lectured on the Teacher's Oath Bill.
The most important activity of the year was the Communion Breakfast held in May. The Club received Com-
munion in a body and then enjoyed a breakfast. At this time the new officers for the next year were installed
and the Club also had the pleasure of hearing inspiring talks given by a group of fine speakers.

The most outstanding accomplishment of W.A.A. this year was the Alumni Co-Recreation Sports Day which
was held on the first Saturday in March. This was the first event of its kind and we sincerely hope that it will
continue each year. Men and women graduates returned for an afternoon of team games and co-recreation
activities, followed by a dinner in the commuter's room and the annual men's basketball games between college
and Alumni. Dancing concluded our first Annual Sports Day and we feel that it was a success.
Due to the hurricane and fire hazards which prevailed in the fall the annual fall Supper Hike had to be post-
poned. However, several Saturday bicycles hikes were organized and they were well supported.
In October four delegates attended the conference at North Adams Teachers College and brought back val-
uable information about Women's Athletic Associations in other Teachers colleges.
In February, Bridgewater girls journeyed to Salem Teachers College for a Basketball Play Day. Eight players
were selected from each class and although our victories were few and far between we think the trip was well
worthwhile. It made all the girls appreciate more the large gymnasium and the complete equipment with which
we are provided.
The point system and the emblem have both been changed this year in order to make the system more effi-
cient. From now on emblems will be awarded on a class basis.
The banquet in May and Campus Carnival in June brought W.A.A. activities to a close.

Living up to the expectations made for it the previous year, the Men's Athletic Association has had a notable
year in every way. The basketball team, an unusually tall one, was outstanding both for the teamwork and
baskets scored. Baseball, soccer, track, and tennis teams were all fairly successful, although the latter suffered
as the result of injury to its ace player.
Among the changes made in the Association was the addition of the managers as well as the captains of the
major varsity sports to the Athletic Association Board. Also, a new publicity committee was formed which kept
the athletic activities before the public eye, particularly through sports columns and articles in the newspapers.
Besides athletics, the association also sponsored a competition for three one-act plays which aroused con-
siderable attention. The semi-formal Banner Dance which the Association organized was in the best college
style and well attended. The annual spring banquet brought the activities to a close.

Boyden Men's Club is designed to permit all the men of the college to know each
other better and to bring them together as a unit. Under the leadership of Harry Dunn,
a series of get-togethers was sponsored which was definitely successful as a means of
creating better mutual understanding and friendship among the members of the
club and between them and the men of the faculty. Smokers and entertainments
were held, rather than the usual dramatic presentation. Opportunity was provided
for hearing interesting speakers and for all members to display hidden talents which
were received enthusiastically.
The annual Father and Son Banquet and entertainment in May brought the Club's
program to an enjoyable conclusion.

EXPLANATION OF THE BOOK
This year, in the 1939 Alpha, we have tried to show in the illustrations the activities
with which Miss Burnell was connected.
The classes plate designed by Elizabeth Lawrence represents Miss Burnell's interest
in her choir.
The S.C.A. plate designed by Muriel E. Logan depicts Miss Burnell's chief duty
and interest; the principalship of Training School.
The activities plate designed by Muriel E. Logan illustrates another phase of Train-
ing School — that of the playground.
Much time and effort have been spent in preparation of these plates— we hope

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE IVY MARCH
The trumpet call represents the call to duty for the seniors.
The oak boughs, held by the freshmen and sophomores symbolize the everlasting
protection of the college.
The daisy-chain, carried by the junior women represents a guard of honor for
The ivy, which is planted and also carried by each graduate, symbolizes the spirit
of comradeship and good fellowship.
The Alma Mater, sung by the seniors at the conclusion of the march, signifies the
continual renewal of their loyalty for the college.

They made me a socialist! They argued on the necessity of socializing at the
beginning of one's college career. They convinced me. I went.
Minus an escort and any knowledge of the terpsichorean techniques but possessing
a spirit of willingness, I arrived at the social. It is not necessary to mention the half
hour I spent before the wicked queer mirror in the downstairs gym, where I tried to
dress my locks (but found myself in everyone else's hair), to apply lipstick, powder
and perfume all of which made me smell like a funeral.
Following tradition I ascended the stairs, stole stealthily to the door leading to
the receiving line and stopped. I fixed my face with a six-teeth smile, summoned my
courage and walked bravely towards the line.
With genuine friendliness I put forth my hand to the first member of the squad,
who ignored it and left me standing with one hand in mid-air and the other one twisted
around the usher's arm. Believing that experience is the best teacher, I decided not
to offer my hand to the next guest. However, this one thrust forward his hand with
such unexpectancy that it took me several minutes to unwind my fingers from my
handkerchief to return the gesture. Repetitions of similar situations continued until
what seemed like an endless finish was reached at long last.
But where was I? At the end of the receiving line with no male to dance with and
no way to return with nonchalance to the wall. I looked on all sides trying to kid my-
self that some men might be considering me as a potential partner. I overestimated
my appearance. I suffered a year that minute until I decided to sneak around the rear
of the receiving line! It worked!
In a moment I was just another decoration on the wall but ostensibly enthusiastic
as a radio announcer. A hybrid of brass and percussion echoed and re-echoed through-
out the dance mecca. I surveyed the swingsters. Rugged individualists! One couple
thought they were shagging but I did that step when I froze my feet. A tall fellow with
more legs than he needed was jiving and was wondering what his partner was doing.
Dismay, despair and discouragement swept over me as I enviously watched the
dancers. I lowered my head and muttered a prayer of salvation from boredom and
social disgrace. I looked up! Here was what the doctor ordered coming in my direc-
tion. But this Apollo swept by me like a clean broom. I waited a few seconds and
then followed him, but he was as elusive as gelatin. I lost him to a senior.
Back to the wall I went. Then suddenly a man approached, called me a worm
and asked me to wiggle. My obvious surprise and gratitude added another rung to
the ladder of this college boy's egotism.
Grasping me with a Sonnenburg grip and placing my cheek against his fuzzy one,
my partner wove me into a terpsichorean pattern from which even Rogers could not
unweave. We danced the international dip, a blending of the Irish jig, the Polish hop,
Lambeth walk, Spanish tango, and American jive until the steps became as confused
as macaroni. In two steps he had manoeuvered me out of the dance traffic, but it
was growing increasingly impossible to keep up with the huge steps my partner was
taking. Perhaps it was the size of his feet, which were not exactly big but I've seen
small ferry boats, too.
To keep the conversational ball rolling he talked about the orchestra, which was
having a rehearsal at our expense: the only thing for which it could be hired being to
Having exhausted the floor, the guests, the orchestra, and the college in general
as topics of conversation I confined myself to dancing, but it proved to be solitary con-
finement, for my partner continued to violate all dance regulations. The torture
continued! I had to endure the social suffering because I knew that with such a small
number of stags one could not be a chooser.
After the third number my partner muttered his gratitude and I mine, because
the end had come. I had taken my first and last step in the march of socialism. I'll
never again be a parlor pink.

WE ARE COMMUTERS
We are commuters, and there are many of us. We get up early in the morning
in order to be on time. Always early, we never miss a class. In an automobile, bus,
or train, cramming silently and frantically for the Junior economics examination
scheduled for the last period. We glance hastily out of the window noticing the black-
ness of a farm house in the white snow. The roofs of the house and the barn are heavy
with snow. The silo is beautifully curved, and there are streaks of platinum blue,
making it beautifully round. All the girls in back sing happily. We-up-front hate
them for their happiness — we are so deep in the Equation of Exchange and index num-
Arriving, we hurry down the back-door path of the college where all the cold winds
have collected out of malice, probably. Our lockers are very untidy with all the books
and old papers that fall out on the floor. There is really no time to pick up anything;
it is best to leave the books there on the floor and go to class.
During classes all morning, we are worried about the economics test and can't
listen to anything. When the morning is over, we have drawn four ladies, at least,
all dressed in the latest fashion — the way we should like to be dressed. One of us has
drawn snakes and a devil. We begin to get apprehensive about the chapters we have
never read — there are five or six of them.
During lunch hour, we make as much noise as possible, and it is hard to hear any
announcements. We eat our sandwiches swiftly and only the dutiful ones among
us eat the crusts. Some of us eat all our cake, leaving the frosting until last.
Then some of us go to the gym to dance or to watch the others, our eyes consider-
ing and critical, some of us study, hidden behind books, some of us go to the library,
draw a chair to the window and watch everyone on the campus. We chuckle to our-
selves as the girls go by in their red wool jackets and yellow hats and their crumpled
reversibles. Sometimes there are puddles for them to jump over. It is best when it
rains, the rain topaz and purple on the campus. It is better still when the purple
beech tree comes into leaf.
All the first period after lunch we are a little dazed and absent-minded. We take
dutiful, copious notes, making captions in the margins.
Next a study period and we all go down to the commuter's room to discuss eco-
nomics. It is too noisy to think. Very seriously we begin, "MV+M' V' = P T." A
little blonde sophomore at the next table says discouragingly, "We're trying to study
over here. Can't you keep still?" We ignore her with frosty composure. A freshman
girl comes up and says worriedly, "My name's on the dean's list. I wonder what I
did." A fat girl with a grieved expression pouts, "No matter how much I study, I flunk
A girl with a buttercup complexion sits on the table and motions dramatically
with her hands. "Of course, he never asks me to dance with him." The girl with her
answers enthusiastically "But darling, I've lost pounds since I went on that vegetable
Finally there is no time to study, and we must go to economics. There are three
questions on the board, and forgetting all the material we have learned, we write some-
thing . . something . . . until our hands ache and we must throw down our pens.
At last the day is over and we go home again in our buses and automobiles and
You have probably seen us in the corridors ... on the stairs . . . studying . . .

SENIORS IN MAROON AND GREY
Close up the Princess — close up Broadcove — the bowling alleys — Boston Theaters —
New York concert halls— it's Saturday night at B.T.C. Saturday night plus winter plus
a little bit of pig and a lot of wind. There are lads in scanty clothes and a referee in
queer ones — and two sober visaged individuals on the side lines to tear their hair —
swear, and a few assorted individuals are sprinkled about also to tear their hair and
swear but at different times. That is important, at different times, or else people will
think you agree with the coach, and nobody ever agrees with a coach, except anxious
substitutes. Add a large female element to screech when things go wrong and scream
when things go right, or the other way around. They sound the same. Maybe there
are a few that know why they're there, W. A. A. officials, the rest have fun.
All basketball games are divided into two groups, one group made up of tall, man-
ly, handsome lads. Bold, dashing, fearless, brilliant, they are the "good guys," and
win or lose they are always the better team. If they lose by 40 points, they're still
the better team. Either the ref was crooked, or the floor was slippery, or they all had
the chicken pox, the floor was too small, or too large, or just right and they couldn't
believe it, or (a special list of 1200 authentic reasons for losing basketball games appears
in this book (see page 386ff). The other droops (should read "groups" darn these
proof-readers) are known in little boy circles as the "bad guys." They are invariably
ugly, mean, unfair, despicable dogs, unfit to play with "good guys." This, of course,
does not include the fair lads from Fitchburg, Hyannis, Salem, etc. — They are just
victims of unfortunate circumstances. You know Bridgewater, a small college —
couldn't hold them all. Well, the good guys throw the "thing" at the hoop at one end,
and the bad guys at a similar receptacle at the other. Wait, just a minute, one of the
bad guys has an intelligent face. What's the story here? Oh, he's the referee, and
we hired him. Oh! — all right, then. The five biggest fellers on each team are taking
off their sweaters, and-look-hey-stop! "Ref," they're taking off their pajamas pants.
Oh, I see, little pants underneath, cute. I simply couldn't imagine. Here they come!
Clap, clap, clap.
Time to begin — scorers ready? — timers ready? I've seen hundreds of games and
no timer has yet dared say "no" — queer. Captain Augustine ready? — Captain Reidy
ready? (note — this name and others herein are products of the author's imagination
and should in no way be associated with any living person; but if you promise not to
tell anyone but your own circle of chance acquaintances this could mean Abe Brenner
of Salem Teachers. It doesn't, of course, but it could). Oh well, Captain Augy has
been ready since his seven course dinner at six (six of which were cornflakes, training,
you know. The other was lemon meringue pie — a man's got to eat.) Captain Reidy
has been reidy all his life. The ref puts the whistle in his mouth, takes it out, curses-
demands another. No whistle in the house. Poor guy stuck all night with a licorice
whistle, and him brought up on assorted fruit flavors. Lap it ref and let's get going.
He raises it to start the game, and in rushes a substitute. Zcybxlykuzzlysk is out
(one of the bad guys). The scorer refuses to handle Zcybxlykuzzlysk, too bad. Zcybxly-
kuzzlysk gets a big hand as he dashes off to the showers. He would have played a great
game. Ray Creampuff to go in his place, good man, (I know whatyou're thinking —
you think I mean Fitchburg's all sport star, Ray Creaner — nonsense!)
Cheep, cheep, the whistle speaks for itself— 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-time out (bad guys)
2-2-2-2-2-2- half time— (good and bad guys) 2-2-2-2-2-2-X-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-cheep,
cheep. Hurry, the game is over. You'll see it all in tomorrow's sport page. How
B.T.C.'s defense weakened in the middle of the second half (X marks the spot.) And
then swiftly and silently, relentlessly the enemy struck, taking advantage of a tactical
error — too many Bridgewater men deployed to the right. Swarms of enemy infantry
pierced the ranks, limped nimbly up to the hoop, and threw it through, right through.
From then on Bridgewater went beserk. After the game Clem Daly was heard to say,
"I didn't know what happened to us — just the breaks of the game, I guess." And
Freddy Martin, crying in the locker room, blurted out — "I could have stopped it" —
Page one hundred and six
and Jim Sampson — "my man— my man". Woodward, Donahue, Sparkes, Costigan,
Tobin, Dowd, DiNardo, Murphy, (in unison) "a sob, good, sob, record, sob, spoiled,
sob, sob." Enter Coach Meier— stillness— quiet, quiet! Never mind, men, there's
always another game,— but we've got to practice and practice hard next week. One
of these days a team is going to get two baskets on us. Then where will we be? So
another win for the Maroon and Gray of Bridgewater and— what? you thought it was
Maroon and White. It was, last year. Next year more good basketball, and another
good team, Captain Henry Woodward, and the boys of the Maroon and Black. Keep
away, laundryman, it's cheaper to change the name.
Whistling closer. . . .
Star corners catch
Lights of sunrise
Once I heard a rabbit
Scream in fright
When I came
around the bend
in the path
Feeling the gold-dark eyes
From the burrow,
Go quietly as briar-flowers
Between red thorns.
A black butterfly
With top-heavy wings
Is throbbing slowly
On an elderberry umbrella.
A breath of most delicate
Wind ... even . . .
Would send it shattered
Among elderberry leaves.

One of our most vivid memories is of the man who first made our class
welcome at college. We are thankful that he was with us during two of our
four years. An idealist, and an ideal, he instilled in us love for our college
